Josh Thomson Breaks Leg.....Off April 11 Strikeforce card


Quote:
A broken left leg sustained during a sparring session earlier today has forced Strikeforce World Lightweight (155 lb. limit) Champion Josh “The Punk” Thomson (16-2) to withdraw from his scheduled title defense against Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez (14-2) at Strikeforce’s “Shamrock vs. Diaz” event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. on Saturday, April 11.

Strikeforce is searching for a replacement fighter to face the top-ranked Melendez in the live SHOWTIME televised event.

“I was sparring hard and I broke my leg, above my ankle, during an exchange,” said the 30-year-old Thomson, who was trading blows with fellow Strikeforce competitor Billy Evangelista when the injury occurred. Thomson is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday and is expected to be out of action for two to three months.

“I’m very upset. All the hard work was done and it was time to fight,” said the injured champ. “I was looking forward to putting on a great show for the fans. All I can say is that I’ll be back when I get healthy.”

Aw what?? That's disappointing. I was against the early rematch, but still, this was a good fight to have on this card. I wonder who they'll get as a replacement...if they can get anyone that is.

Wouldn't mind seeing David Douglas or Duane Ludwig step in here.

I would definitely be down for Ludwig. I don't know much about Douglas though.

I think Ludwig has a better chance. Douglas only has 5 fights and I don't think they'll give him competition like this yet.

It's getting close. They need to figure out who the hell is stepping in here.

Don't know yet. I'll keep looking around. Maybe they should just bring Bang in.
